Cadence License Notifier

As an intern this past summer I made a quick little perl script for notifying myself if someone else needed a Cadence license, we had a small amount of licenses available to work with so it was important to make sure that you weren’t keeping the license for too long if someone else needed it or if you were just sitting on it.

This script only needs the location of your license file, it will check if you are using cadence and if someone else becomes queued a pop-up window will warn you. If you hit ok, the pop-up box will leave you alone for 1 minute and check again.
